overhang into next year when president obama outlined yesterday on "meet the press" for david gregory his top five priorities for 2013. this makes it much harder, makes that much harder to do something on guns, to do something on immigration, to do real tax reform, to do infrastructure spending. now he has to deal with all the coming calamities, the new cliffs that are going to set up, even if there is some sort of a deal tonight. >> yeah, and don't forget, guys, we've also got the continuing resolution that expires early next year. that means you'd face the prospect of a government shutdown and you've got this debt ceiling fight, and that means you face the prospect of a default on the national debt. those are very serious things and we're going to be dealing with them over the next couple of months, and people are feeling very bruised and burned here. i think the tone going into those negotiations is just awful. >> mm-hmm. >> you know, you look -- look, the president's party got an expanded presence in the house this last election. they got an expanded majority in the senate. he won big
straight sessions. it's the s&p's longest losing streak in three months. next, what can president obama learn from abraham lincoln? >> one of the things that you learn having now been in this office for four years is, you know, the old adage of abraham lincoln's, that with public opinion there's nothing you can't do, and without public opinion, there's very little you can get done in this town. atchee worked for us. we don't argue much. we really don't. meg usually just gets her way, and i go along with it. i think it worked for matt because i did it for him. when i'm the one cooking, i'm the one calculating the points. i can microwave things. you get to eat real food. we still get to go out. we're just so much smarter about it. we can keep each other in check. going, "okay, i see you." we've lost about 110 pounds together. it helped our love life. happy wife, happy life, right? right.

plane after it overshoots a runway and crashes into a motorway. hello, president obama has made another appeal to the u.s. congress to reach an agreement in the next 48 hours to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. it's a term used to describe the expiry of tax cuts dating back to 2001. if there is no deal, 88% of americans will end up paying $400 billion more in 2014. that will be coupled with more than a trillion dollars in automatic government spending cuts. according to the congressional budget office it will start with $200 billion in military and social welfare cuts next year. the big concern over falling off the fiscal cliff is it will send the u.s. back into a recession with, of course, global repercussions. it could be weeks before anyone feels the effects. and analysts say even without an agreement, politicians can reach other deals to soften the impact. >> u.s. president barack obama making a rare appearance on one of u.s. tv's agenda-setting sunday shows. he appealed to politicians of both parties not to let the u.s. go off the so-called fiscal cliff. the budget crisis, some ka
presidency, and we're about to start the conversation of $1 trillion of obama care taxes over the next decade, obama and the democrats' tax cutters will be laughed out of the park. >> with respect, he's just won the election on that basis, hasn't he, that he would tax the rich more, and give away candies to those on $250,000 or below. you know, the democrats have long opposed the bush era tax cuts. but now they have this as a new pledge, simply to win power. >> well, interestingly, what's happened is the president has moved 98% of the way towards the republican position. he opposed the bush tax cuts. he said they were a bad idea, both in 2001 and 2003. and now he's talking about wanting to maintain 98% of them or so. it's very interesting. the collapse of obama towards the taxpayer position, not all the way, is notable. but on the other hand, what he gives with one hand, or doesn't take away with one hand, he does take away with the other, and that's the $1 trillion of obama care taxes, and the hundreds of billions of regulatory burdens that are coming out and hurting the economy now. i think
but his mother says taniya is responsible. president obama says the connecticut school shooting should be enough to bring a new gun control law next year. the president said something fundamental in the country had to change after the recent mass shooting. the president says he supports banning assault weapons and high capacity ammunition clips. but he's against the national rifle association's idea to put more armed guards in schools. i'm skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools. vice president biden is leading a task force to create new gun legislation. the president says the recent school shooting could persuade lawmakers who are reluctant to support gun control to pass a bill. the body of the gunman in the connecticut school shooting has been claimed for burial. adam lanza killed himself after he shot and killed 26 people at sandy hook elementary on december 14-th. he also murdered his mother before he went to the school. the new york times reports that someone claimed lanza's remains for burial, but it that person is said to have wanted to remain anonymous.
as long as i'm president. i am going to be president if the next four years i hope. >> well, senator john mccain blasting president obama's comments on debt negotiations. the senator is joining us from the capitol. you said that the president was antagonizing congress? >>guest: well, you played the clip. that is the point when we are in sensitive and serious negotiations. you talked with byron about the sequestration issue, a matter of great concern. when the secretary of defense says if we do sequestration it will devastate our national security, our ability to defend the nation, and the president is going over there joking around and saying things that can be not conducive to sitting across the table and getting things accomplished. >> so, help us through the technical as expects of this. we are learning the house of representatives will not vote on a deal today which means we are tumbling off the cliff. what is next? >>guest: well, probably tonight it is very possible the senate could vote on the package and when the house comes back after the 1st they will vote. that is not a done dea
that's the case and also what you see is washington, including president obama and congress, they are like kids playing soccer, they go to whichever ball is next and don't look at the bigger picture. there was a gun-- a terrible shooting, now they want to do gun control. they have some-- it's from one thing to the next and rather than a bigger picture and dealing with things. >> and mark this the beginning of the end of the n.r.a. as a big tougher-- >> their approval. >> like the unions. >> and no, no, a lot higher than that. >> i repeat, still ahead on "the five." >> so, these are chicken wings. >> wow, minnesota or wisconsin, one or the other. >> music, ♪ i'm singing forever. >> i'm so glad i could introduce this. one of the great things about "the five" is all the fun they have at this table. we'll look at some of the wildest moments. you don't want to miss this. we'll be right back. ♪ let's twist again like we did last year ♪ ♪ ♪ in new york city, dancing in the street ♪ >> yes, sir, hello, excuse me. welcome back to "the five." my personal five, that's five
have doubled next month. they have extended the bill for a year. house leaders have not agreed to puttet it up for a vote but that could happen as early as today. >>> president obama says gun control will be one of his top priorities during the beginning of his second term. he recalled the deadly shooting in newtown, connecticut. >> the question should become are we actually shook up enough by what happened here that it does not become another one of these routine episodes where it gets a lot of attention for a couple of weeks and then it drifts away. it certainly won't feel like that to me. this is something that -- you know that was the worst day of my presidency. >> 20 first graders and six staff members were killed at the sandy hook elementary school in newtown. the president said he was skeptical about an nra proposal to put an armed guard in every school. >>> former president george h.w. bush remains in a houston hospital this morning, but mr. bush was moved back to a regular room on saturday out of the intensive care unit. he spent a week there
at odds over key issues such as creating an income threshold for raising taxes. president obama says gop leaders have rejected his proposals to make a comprehensive deal. republicans say they are willing to work together. so what does this mean for you? coming up in the next hour, we'll talk live with congressman jerry connelly and congressman phil roe for a closer look at the looming deadline. >>> still ahead this hour, secretary of state hillary clinton hospitalized. we'll have an update on her condition. we'll be right back. (vo) sometimes the big plan doesn't work. and the perfect life turns out to be not so perfect. you start fresh. new city. new job. new everything. it's exciting, and scary, at the same time. and some days you think, "i can't do this on my own." but then...i went to suntrust. they helped me figure things out. and before you know it, i am doing it... (anncr) at suntrust, helping people shine is what we do. join the thousands who are switching to suntrust's award-winning service. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton will spend the new year in a new york hospital so
that obama care has that begins over the next decade. in addition to -- >> their net -- their net reducers to the deficit over ten years. let me ask you this last question. >> the tax increases that affect people's decisions. >> will you be around and do you expect to be reached out to as a deal is reached to give it a blessing? >> certainly i'm working with all of the fols trying to defend taxpayers here in congress in the house and senate. the leadership of the house have all made the commitment in writing their constituents to oppose all efforts to raise taxes. i don't think you will see something that actually raises taxes, we may get some tax cuts now and have to fight for others later. watch for the leverage that the republicans have in debt ceiling and the continued resolutions. that allows us to come back and actually fight for spending cuts, but also for further tax reductions. >> grover, good to see you, thank you for being with us. >> good to be with you. >> on the mainstream media. >> the establishment. >> establishment media. thank you. i'm sorry. we will not be dealing with t

, which reflected the obama administration's understanding that budgets were going to be constrained first. and that second, the united states would not be likely to fight anymore wars like iraq or afghanistan in the near future, or the next decade or so. >> the point is that the american appetite for global intervention is going to decrease. there aren't many americans that want to keep going in afghanistan after 2014. there aren't many americans that are gonna want to go into iraq even given its importance in terms of global energy and oil. >> i think that reflects an understanding of where the country is. the u.s. whatever you think about how long troops should remain in afghanistan. i think everybody thinks that's enough with that kind of commitment of u.s. forces overseas. >> is our mission to eliminate taliban? it never was our mission. it is nation building? is it sending children to school? is it building sewer systems? is it going after al-qaeda? so, all those factors are complicated but they have to be carefully thought through and i'm not sure we've done that very well in the la
